MPV Statement on Police Brutality, Excessive Use of Force and Systematic Racism
In response to Mike Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri and to the statement of the UN Committee Against Torture
MPV supports the statement of the United Nations Committee Against Torture regarding concerns of frequent and recurrent police shootings or fatal pursuits of unarmed black individuals.
We call on the UN to support the monitoring of the progress of U.S. law enforcement tactics that directly address cultural competency and interracial relations. We also support the investigation of humanitarian relief efforts to eradicate race related incidences.
MPV stands firmly with the idea that justice and compassion should be the guiding principles for all aspects of human conduct. MPV believes that these principles will help eradicate the problems that come with racism and implicit bias. We also believe that productive dialogue across the country is imperative for the betterment of our country’s race relations.
